    My new presents

    I bought these both online. This first one is my design wall. I have my embroidery unit in its huge box behind the right side of the wall so itís sticking out kind of funny. You roll it up and down. My closet is behind/underneath it. It was the only place I had left to put it...thatís why I purchased this roller one.

    This is my favorite item I purchased online. I bought it from Clydeís Workshop. He has a few quilting items for sale. His workmanship is impeccable. I own two of these and the other one is crammed with my rulers I use most often. I havenít put anything in this shelf but Iíve put my walking foot in my other shelf.

    This is with the shelf door closed. What is your favorite quilting item?

    Love the shelf where did you find it please. My sewing room has a very limited amount of wall space . Lots of light with windows on three sides. But I can see possibilities for the shelf. Thank you for the post.

    Your new items are wonderful!
    I just recently purchased a butcher block top kitchen cart for my embroidery machine. It is very sturdy and fits perfectly in front of my DVD shelves - since it is on wheels I can still get to my DVD's with ease, it is high enough that I am not bending over to thread change and it gives me two more shelves underneath to fill up! :-)

    Your kitchen cart sounds great! Especially since it’s on wheels. I bought my hanging ruler holder online from www.clydes-workshop.com. I think it has eleven tracks (very long where you can put a few rulers on each track) on it. I love mine. Best use of my money!

    Great organization ideas! What are all the dowels used for? Wall hangings?

    DJ i think the skinny "dowels" are actually scent sticks. the bottles usually come with some liquid scent and it wicks up the sticks. at least I have one similar.

    I have pocket doors on my sewing room which is great, but no room for a design wall, until I hung command hooks above the pocket doors and hung a Fon's and Porter design wall there. I can take it down when not using.

    I love the design wall what a great idea. I took a flannel backed pc of yardage the length of my shelves & folded along one edge & placed grommets there. I then can use shower hooks & place over my shelving to protect my fabric ( from sun & my families prying eyes. ) I ame able to use a lint roller to clean the threads off it.

    I never thought of using a lint roller to get the threads off the design wall. What a great idea!

    My favorite quilting item, hands down, is my LA followed closely by my Bernina. I have really low ceilings in my home so a design wall wouldn't work too well for me as most of the quilts I make are queen size. I use my guest bed instead, it isn't perfect but it works and gives me more surface space than my low ceilings would allow with a design wall.
    I am envious of your roll up design wall.
    I use a peg board to hang all my rulers and tools. The shelf unit is super cute, but in my case, it wouldn't be as functional for me as the peg board. I have one in my LA room as well to hold all my templates, stencils and rulers as well as odds and ends. Do love my pegboards. They aren't near as pretty as your shelf but they are incredibly fuctional and practical.

    Both of these are really beautiful! I really love both of them and want them!

    I am especially taken with the pull down design wall. Could you share where you got it? Thank you.

    I used my garage wall in a house or two because I did not have enough wall space.

    I love your use of cup hooks. Everything is so easily seen.
